On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has sweet macerated cherries and cherry preserve notes. Taste is mostly tart, dry and fruity. It's decent but quite simple.

12 ounce pour at the Montreal brew pub. Crystal clear cherry juice. Smells like sweet, dark cherries. Tastes like tart yet sweet, dark cherry juice. Really delicious.

Looks like a really red gamay with a stable pinkish head. Aroma - cherries of course, but not sour cherry but really ripe black cherry. The black cherry lingers in throughout flavour where it is balanced by the funky sourness of the style.

This is a good beer, and really nice to have it back to back with the raspberry, just to highlight how great the raspberry is.

Light sour cherry in the aroma, a bit more in the flavour, but the base Berlinerweisse really shines through.

Bright cherry red with very little head and next to no lacing. Cherry on the nose, mild funk. Tart cherry with crispy, spritzy carbonation. Very nice and better than the raspberry to my taste.

Enjoying with thanks to Phyl21ca.
Rarely does a bottle embody its description so exactly...
Pours a brilliant and nearly luminescent pink with a low carbonation level that still manages a reasonable mouthfeel. Sour cherries are prominent in both aroma and flavour. Tart and refreshing. Worth trying.

Nice pink/red color with a fast disappearing head and lots of carbonation. Smell like a cherry cheesecake. Also taste like a cherry cheesecake, really good. It's really sour too, very refreshing. Owns up to the name!
